    Would you recommend Krakow or Warsaw for a first short visi to Poland?

    Well best thing to do when you have kids around krakow is not Auswitz or Salt mines but Energylandia or the Polish mountains. The Jewish quarter is still part of the tourist route, so relatively expensive, try go out the real center for a real Poland experience, both in service as well as in prices. Nothing in the center or theJewish quarter is reasonably prices, its all expensive tourist priced. Stag parties are fun to crash into when their not too drunk and I had numerous of good evenings guiding them around Krakow. All in all I rate this video of advice a 3 out of 10.

    3:15 this person is a total moron, an idiot and imbecile. I drive in Krakow every day, my wife included, and in most cases i deemed drives here idiots, but the rules of the road are 100% ingraved in 99% of the people. WHY? Well, most of the people had to repeat their driving license few times because the rules are so strict so fck off dude. As a pedestrian I walk on the pedestrian crossing and 99% drives will slow down and let you through. Once again 4:00 Krakow is not cheap for Polish people, i understand, you do not deem Polish as humans, but it is not cheap for people, who work here, ok? I was working as an IT supporter few years ago for QVC, and black american lady was earning twice as much for her worthless job in USA, and her IQ was like 30% of mine…the drunk guys come from other countries, so you gotta watch for your own, once again.

    All these videos about Poland feel 20 years outdated. I know you've been back, but I can't help but feel like you've been tainted what it was like back then. Having traveled around Europe recently, Poland felt like one of the safer countries on my trip. I didn't experience people not stopping at crosswalks, if anything they were already stopped before I even approached.

    You really have to point out that the tap water is safe to drink like it's some 3rd world country? I think in the Warsaw video you mentioned crime. Warsaw is extremely safe. Sure petty crime can happen, but it's among the safest cities in Europe now. I didn't experience a single panhandler on my trip like what you've describe, much unlike most western cities.

    And shoutout to the Germans for Auschwitz, please stop disassociating them from their crimes by referring to them simply as "Nazis".

    I live in Kraków and "don't take pictures inside churches" isn't quite right. Usually you can take pictures inside churches *when there's no service going on*. This is what the sign presented in the video refers to – when there's Mass or another service not only should you not take pictures inside the church but you also shouldn't just walk around naves like a tourist and talk to other people. Catholic services are usually solemn and peaceful, the faithful don't appreciate noise or distraction and they would consider it 100 times more disrespectful if the Most Holy Sacrament is present.

    This is why I would recommend visiting beautiful churches in Poland on Monday-Friday between 8/9am and 5pm. There are many Masses on Sundays. Saturdays are usually OK if the church is not popular for weddings 🙂

    Some of these don't would apply in Massachusetts, in particular "no drinking alcohol in public." My international students found that funny until I explained that the police officer or park ranger gave them a break by dumping their booze and telling them if he came back and saw it again they'd get cited. As the brochure says, "Know before you go!"

    I was wondering if I had to pay to get into the castle too, and joined a queue for that reason, but then was told I didn't have to. I'm glad I didn't get my phone out to take some pictures inside the cathedral. I was tempted to, but security were telling others not to do so! I really enjoyed my stay in the city. I rented an apartment in Podgorze, which was ideal for exploring the old Jewish Ghetto.

    Don't expect US style of service in restaurants or shops. For many Polish such style is annoying.
    Here is how it works:
    I go to a shop for buying, not for chatting. If I need help I'll ask. I go to a restaurant to eat and have good time with those I go with, not to talk to a waiter every 5 minutes. If I need help (or anything) from the waiter I'll ask.

    One more don't when you are in Krakow. Don't say "Krakau", the correct pronunciation is "Krakoov". 👍

    Pictures in the church ? So you think the tourists can do pictures in the place where Catholics pray ? Churches are for pray not for tourist satisfaction . Just go to zoo.

    I just got back from Krakow, and I have another tip: Be careful about walking on the cobblestone streets! Your feet will pay the price if you don't have a good pair of shoes and walk on the cobblestones too much. By the end of my visit, I could barely walk because my feet were in so much pain, but I probably could have done less damage to my feet if I had brought better walking shoes and tried to stay off the cobblestones more.

    It is your own opinion about Krakow. I am Polish. Have been in Krakow so many times and half of the stuff you said is not true. Sad that you promote yourself by making not really checked information.
    Only one church ONE where you can’t take a pictures is on Wawel so don’t say many of them as is incorrect.

    Quite a few misconceptions.
    Auschwitz is in "Oświęcim" which is a Town 40 miles from Kraków, it's not "in Kraków" as you said
    and Kraków itself is a City not a Town.
    1+ million inhabitants I wouldn't call a town lol, except maybe in India, but defo not in Europe/Poland.

    As for the service, no idea what you meant, I've actually had better hotel/restaurant service here than in Vienna or Bern or Geneva, and for 1/4th the price.

    Since this or last year there is a new law in Poland that makes it mandatory for the car to stop if they see a pedestrain approaching a crosswalk. So the "tourist daze" is safer now. 😉

    I love krakow but one thing to be very aware off are the money changing scams which are allowed to rip tourist off I changed £320 in one of these money changing yellow booths just off main square they advertised false rates outside to fool tourists when I received my zloty it was the equivalent of around £210 I received for my £320 I released right away and complained but to no avail I was completely ignored my question is why does the law enforcement in krakow allow this to happen it will put many tourists from returning to krakow and it is definitely bad press for poland in general , these exchange places are robbing tourist blind with total protection to do so
